WE'RE A FATHER
AND SON TEAM
Human resources has never been sweeter (or fluffier)
Runs a tight ship as head of security around here
Still learning the ropes, working his way into customer service
The first time a 19-year-old Robert Cosma met with Aetna to sell casters and glides for office chairs, he and his uncle (who sold the parts wholesale by day) laughed hysterically on the car ride because they didn’t have a business name or business cards to offer. They landed the sale, and Robert kept landing sales after that, with any insurance company, school, nursing home, or business that would take an appointment.
From that very first sale, the wheels in Robert’s head started turning at every meeting, noticing where companies had needs and how he could help. Robert was a natural salesman, and his ingenuity took the business to the next level – not only did he notice which parts and products his clients needed to replace often, but he came up with more durable, longer-lasting versions to sell, ordering custom wardrobe closets manufactured to his specifications or making smaller products in his uncle’s garage.
In 2017, Magnum grew when Robert’s son, Matthew, joined the business. A 2015 graduate of the University of Connecticut, Matt studied landscape architecture and worked at a national architectural firm for two years before coming on board to help take Magnum to the next level.
Matt grew up hearing about his dad’s business at home, and entrepreneurship is in his blood — his now-wife Kathleen drove him door-to-door around the neighborhood to drop off flyers for his landscaping business every spring in high school. Matt’s education at UConn and as a certified therapeutic garden landscape designer, plus his experience at a multidisciplinary architectural firm, helped him gain a solid understanding of technical building information and the eager mindset to learn on the job. In no time, Matt knew the business inside and out, and now manages Magnum's projects alongside his father.
